Jewish organizations of Poland have “declared war” on the entire present Cabinet as the result of the approval of the numerus clausus by the education commission of the Sejm. They are particularly indignant because of the support given the measure by the Minister of Education, Glombinski.

The Zionist Congress which is meeting here at present adopted resolutions bitterly condemning the act of the Education Commission, and the Jewish Sejm Club announced it would fight every inch against the proposal of Premier Witos and his Cabinet.

According to rumors current here, the anti-Semitic leader Roman Dmowski is being considered for the position of Foreign Minister.
